41.78 Released


Recommended Posts

Hotfix 41.78.16 - December 12th:

  • Fixed ServerConnectPopup missing the new "Use Steam Relay" option, which led to the +connect argument not working.

Hotfix 41.78.15 - December 5th:


  • Fixed being able to still add a split-screen player when AllowCoop is disabled.
  • Fixed seeing through walls sometimes after loading into a game.
  • Fixed an error in ISZoneDisplay:getZoneTooltipText.
  • Fixed players briefly appearing at 0,0 on the in-game map after joining a server.
  • Fixed displaying players with name ??? on the in-game map. This happened when the client had not received the first full update with the player's name and other info

Hotfix 41.78.13 - November 30th:


  • Added AllowCoop server option to allow or disallow splitscreen clients.
  • Added MaxTextureSize (default 256) and MaxVehicleTextureSize (default 512) options to the Display options menu. Each of these can be 256, 512, 1024 or 2048.
  • Fixed the propane required for the metal wall upgrade system so that you are capable of making a Mk II metal wall without having to upgrade first.
  • Fixed sleeping pills not being taken in account with the panic sleep exploit fix.
  • Fixed some vehicle textures (such as for wheels) being limited to 256x256 instead of 512x512.
  • Fixed reading ServerList.txt and ServerListSteam.txt with the default system encoding instead of UTF-8.
  • Fixed being unable to slice or smash a rotten watermelon.
  • Fixed an error in the farming menu that limited squares watered after the first to 50 water units maximum instead of 100.
  • Fixed /additem command exception when run from the server console.
  • Fixed redundant console output from ISInventoryPaneContextMenu.lua

Hotfix 41.78.12 - November 23rd:

  • Propane Torch usage rebalanced for Fixing and Repair scripts to accommodate the change in capacity; all reduced to 2.

  • Added "AllowRottenItem:true" parameter to the recipes to Empty Frying Pans; Griddle Pans; and Roasting Pans. This will allow players to reclaim said pans when they let Stir Fries and Omelettes get rotten.
  • Recipes such as the Mildew Spray Cure, and Emptying Sacks of produce now have the field "AllowRottenItem:true" which allows rotten items to be used in that recipe.
  • Fixed the Make Mildew Cure recipe not allowing both regular and Canned Milk; as players were unable to make this cure after all of the normal Milk has gone rotten.
  • Fixed being unable to use Rotten Milk to make the Mildew Spray Cure.

  • Commented out the "Make Pot of Soup" recipes; they're obsolete given the evolved recipe system which handles this matter better.
  • Fixed being unable to use Canned Soup to make evolved recipe soup.
  • Changed the display name of "Canned Soup" to "Canned Vegetable Soup".
    • Note: To make Pots of Soup with Opened Cans of Soup you must now add them to a Pot of Water, as an evolved recipe soup. This fixes the Super Soup exploit and will allow players to also add additional ingredients to the Soup. The other way of making Pots of Soup was an obsolete and in many ways incompatible method from before the evolved recipe system.

  • Updated the Clean Tray recipe so it works with trays of Biscuit Dough, and also so that it works with rotten and cooked ingredients, so players can always recover a tray from rotten trays of food.
  • Several tweaks to clothing masks.
  • Added missing SetMelee Delay on Pistol Whip animation.
  • Fixed Hoodie and Vest masks to work properly with base mesh.
  • Fixed JokeKnife, JokeArrow, BunnyEars, FurryEars, Antlers and GodStar Headbopper to work with all hairstyles.

  • Fixed Buckets not having been updated to use metal filling sounds instead of plastic filling sounds.

  • Fixed not using a language's desired encoding when reading credits.txt.
  • Fixed non-admins seeing invisible remote players on the in-game map.




  • Added a prompt for the updated Terms of Service as we are a big boy game now and have to fit in with the other biggerer boys.
  • Added sandbox option to disable Fake Dead Reanimation. Disabled Fake deads in MP by default.
  • Added more control over fake dead behaviour to the sandbox options; having zombies that were "killed" having a chance to become fake dead is an option that is off by default.
  • Added sandbox option that allows Corpse Maggot spawning to be disabled or limited to corpse inventory.
  • Added sandbox option that allows poisoning food to be disabled, or for poisoning food with bleach to be disabled.

  • Renamed Item "Weight" to "Encumbrance" in the UI and context menu.
  • Added an Accessibility Option that makes the player character automatically walk to a click container within a short radius of 3 tiles.
  • Added the ability to set custom "Good" and "Bad" highlighting colours in the Accessibility Options menu. This is applied to things like traits, tooltips, and the aiming outline.
  • Added an option to bind "Walk To" to a key instead of having to go through the RMB menu.
  • Added highlighting to clicked Crates so it's easier to tell which crate is selected. This can be enabled or disabled in the in-game Options.
  • Added a Context Menu entry that enables/disables Auto-Drink.
  • Tiles that are being disassembled will now be highlighted in the "bad colour", red being the default.
  • Resolutions higher than 1440p will have their zoom levels adjusted to allow closer zoom-in, bringing it more in line with lower resolutions.

    • The limit is 10 for some and 20 for other Randomized Survivor Safehouses.
    • This also means the Toilet Paper story is now disabled in buildings that have over 10 rooms or are spawn locations, which will likely reduce the amount of Reddit posts about it by 50%.
  • Added a check to prevent any of the randomized burnt building stories from occurring if the building is a spawn location.
  • Changed ISCloseVehicleDoor to play the door closing sound when the action is completed instead of its start. This is to provide better feedback for players in cases where they have unwittingly cancelled this action.
  • Added "HasMetal" tag for items. This tag was added to food and water items in metal containers, which will now set microwaves on fire when microwaved.
  • Adjusted the mechanics UI so that both the Battery Charge and Condition are included in the Battery entry in the list of parts.

  • Added a few more existing clothing options to the character creation.
  • Added the ability to destroy only one wall when selecting corner walls.
  • Replaced the bucket world static model textures with metal icons and textures and not plastic ones, as buckets are now metal and not plastic.

  • Changed the Violet FoodType to NoExplicit.
  • Trash tiles (Movable items) and Plastic Bags can now be used as tinder and fuel for fires.
  • Changed the Sawed-off Shotgun recipes to only use the hacksaw, and not the garden saw; a wood saw would be unable to cut through the metal barrel of a shotgun.
  • Added the Meat Cleaver to the Slice Onions recipe. Removed it from the Jack-o'-lantern recipe.
  • Changed the Cigarettes script to prioritize using Matches before a Lighter if both are in the same inventory.

  • Changed IGUI_HouseKey from "House Key" to "Key" to avoid issues with non-residential keys.
  • Removed the numeric information tooltip provided when selecting eat all/half/quarter food item context options.
  • Commented out the tool definitions in ClothingRecipesDefinitions as they currently are nonfunctional and serve no purpose aside from confusing modders.
  • Commented out the WoodenLance in the safehouse weapons distro lists; that item is redundant vs SpearCrafted, and also doesn't work with spear recipes. SpearCrafted already spawns with safehouse weapons.
  • Replaced AmmoStraps in the safehouse armor distro list with AmmoStraps_Bullets and AmmoStraps_Shells.
  • Changed the display name translation string for the wearable AmmoStraps items to Bandolier on account of consistent confusion with the weapon attachment that is also called Ammo Straps.
  • Changed the display name translation string for firearm magazines to use the firearm it is for, and not the caliber, as the prefix. Solves having two .308 Magazines, for both the MSR788 and the M14, and also that's how they're named in real life.
  • Added a tooltip to firearm magazines that displays the ammunition type that it accepts.
  • Added missing models for Candy Corn, Candied Fruit Slices, Hot Sauce, Fountain Cups, JuJubes, Nettles, Shrimp Dumplings, Poached Eggs, Scrambled Eggs, Packaged Corn, Pickled Ginger, Sugar Cookies, Fish Sushi, Radio Receivers,Radio Transmitters, Gummy Bears, Gummy Worms, and Tent Kits.


  • Added server option "KnockedDownAllowed" to enable/disable the PVP knockdown.
    • This is a stopgap change to give servers an option to make PVP combat less frustrating before we can address PVP combat more directly in the future.
  • Adjusted Type 3 and 5 Anticheat to reduce false-positives.
  • Added auto-completion for player nicknames when pressing TAB while typing in the Chatbox.
  • Added RCON command "checkModsNeedUpdate" to check for mods that need to be updated.
  • Allow other non-admin permission levels to delete items in inventory/containers.
  • Added Checksum logging for MP servers, enabled by default for now.
  • Extended NetChecksum logs:
    • Client dumps logs into checksum.txt.
    • Client sends logs to server.
    • Server dumps logs into checksum.txt.
    • Server dumps client's logs into checksum- .txt.
  • Multiplayer clients will now retry the GettingServerInfo request 3 times.
  • DB Viewer userlog will now have the amount field increased for repeated counts of suspicious activity.
  • When sorting the relative paths of scripts and Lua files to determine load order, the relative paths are first converted to lowercase. This is to fix platform differences breaking checksums in multiplayer. It also fixes the issue where the same file might be loaded more than once if mods use different capitalization for the same file or folder.
  • Fixed the multiplayer "whisper" command corrupting the Lua environment due to multithreading.
  • Fixed being unable to claim a safehouse unless standing on the ground floor.
  • Fixed not checking upper floors for other players or zombies when claiming a safehouse.
  • Fixed an exception on the server when food rots into a new item in a container that isn't in the world any longer.

      • Added CritDmgMultiplier 10
      • Added AimingPerkCritModifier 12
    • M14 CriticalChance changed from 0 to 30.
      • Added CritDmgMultiplier 10
      • AimingPerkCritModifier 15
  • Disabled the cumulative slowdown until the next shot when firing the M16 in automatic mode. Firing the M16 in automatic mode will cumulatively reduce the chance of a critical with each additional shot. This is intended to represent the loss in accuracy due to recoil.
  • Short summary of the various changes in this changelog that impact the Propane Torch and Propane Tanks. There has been a pretty longstanding bug where Propane Torches were not used up for several Disassemblies. With the fix, usage of them was reduced from 100 to 10 but the number of refills per tank was adjusted from 2 to 16, along with changes that make sure players find more Propane Tanks in the world to offset the reduction.
  • Set some traits to be mutually exclusive to remove exploits or illogical combinations.
  • Hot-Wiring a vehicle will have a low chance of causing a car alarm. The chance for this is decreased further for higher electronics skill levels.
  • Zombies pushing up against a previously unentered stationary vehicle have a chance to set off an alarm.
  • Removed the undesired RNG check that made vehicle alarms go off only 20% of the time.
  • Fixed car hoods being unable to trigger vehicle alarms.
  • Disabled being able to make melee attacks while inside a vehicle with the window rolled down.
  • Randomized the fall damage that zombies take. This randomized spread will average out to the previous damage before it was randomized; this will have a minor impact (hohoho) on the damage that zombies that fall suffer, but slightly more of them will be able to be killed by this than before.
  • Made it so groin injuries from not-crawler zombies are less common, and that crawlers can also inflict uncommon groin injuries.
  • Increased the yield of metal parts when scrapping wrecked vehicles by 33%.
  • Added a new procedural container, "CratePropane", to garages and shed.
  • Increased the spawn rates for Propane Tanks in the distributions.
  • Increased the spawnrate of Thread and added the chance of Sewing Kits to spawn in gloveboxes.
  • Trailer capacity now reduces slightly when damaged, as there was no point in repairing them before.
  • Changed Bowling Ball Bag capacity from 2 to 8.
  • Increase number of Plaster uses to 10, same as Paint.
  • Allow plastic bags and money to be used as tinder
  • Adjusted duration of the stationary Pistol Whip animation, it's now the same length as the shove animation.
  • Adjusted the capacities of pistol and revolver cases from 7 down to 4.
  • Adjusted Encumbrance of the sturdy stick item to 1 to be more consistent with other items.
  • Adjusted Encumbrance of fire extinguishers to 2, to be consistent with other items.
  • Decreased Encumbrance of Walkie-Talkies.
  • Adjusted Encumbrance of the TreeBranch item to match that of a crafted spear, to 1.7 from 1;
    • The Encumbrance discrepancy has been remarked upon repeatedly, and this also serves in making item Encumbrance more consistent.
  • Adjusted the amount of fuel that spawns in fuel pumps at Low and Very Low.
  • Updated the nutritional value for Canned Evaporated Milk. Calories 472; Carbs, Lipids, and Proteins at 23.6
  • Changed the days until rotten for Bagels from 2 to 6.
  • Gave the Stir Fry and roast script items a default hunger value of 10. This was previously reported as a bug when players spawned the item in instead of making it via the evolved recipe.
  • Maggots are slightly more poisonous.
  • Fewer maggots spawn, especially in spring and fall (maggots don't spawn during winter).
  • Maggots are now a default item in the world item removal lists. Added a comment for the world item removal lists explaining that Base.Maggots should stay in the list due to corpse maggots.
  • Additional safeguard to prevent errors when using mods that remove maggots altogether.


  • Added a search bar to the LootZed cheat panel.
  • Added vehicle distributions to LootZed.
  • Improved inventory check-in Check Stats panel.
  • Right-clicking on a fuel pump in debug mode will display the amount of fuel in the pump in the right-click context menu.
  • Added logging of player injuries caused by zombies to the console when in debug mode.
  • Added isStartValid function check for BaseTimedAction. Allows checking if an action is valid before the action starts.
  • Added saving ModData from IsoGameCharacter to IsoDeadBody and from IsoDeadBody to IsoZombie.
  • Added "OnPlayerGetDamage" event.
  • Added event "OnWeaponHitThumpable" (Args: character, weapon, object)
  • Added a trigger for the OnFillContainer Event when vehicle part containers are filled.
  • Added the tag "CarBattery" which can be used with mod item car batteries so they can be charged with the vanilla car battery charger.
  • Added the event "OnThrowableExplode", which transmits the IsoTrap and IsoSquare when one detonates.
  • Added a toggle option in the vehicle debug context menu that will show if a vehicle's alarm is enabled or disabled.
  • Changed Fast Move cheat in debug. Players can now levitate on different height levels via the PageUP/PageDown keys, and move around via the Arrow Keys on the different height levels.
  • Made ImageScale, SeatOffsetY and SeatOffsetX global and not local in ISVehicleSeatUI.
  • "Missing translation", "ignoring invalid ItemPicker item type", and "VEHICLE MISSING CONT DISTRIBUTION" console messages will now only appear when using debug mode.
  • Exposed the MediaData.MediaLineData class.
  • When the Sound.WorldSound.Render debug option is enabled, world sounds are rendered according to the Hearing sandbox option.
    • For Hearing=Random (where each zombie may have a different radius) sounds are rendered using the Hearing=Normal radius.
    • This does not mean that their hearing radius is not randomized, it only means that a world sound radius cannot be rendered on a per zombie basis in debug mode.
    • For Hearing=Pinpoint/Normal/Poor, meta-zombie hearing radius is handled properly.
  • FileDifferent, FileNotOnServer, and FileNotOnClient errors will now display the absolute paths of both files. This should make it clearer that a mod might just have been using the wrong capitalization for a folder.
  • Fixed characters in godmode still changing body weight.
  • Fixed instances of the Cheat Menu not working after a player died.
  • Fixed removing bodies via Horde manager not working in SP.

GOG release will happen when GOG staff wakes up i assume?

It was updated yesterday already.
Not sure why the offline installers are not available for Windows yet but I reckon it won't take too long.


You can check through GOG Galaxy though. If it doesn't show up, try the Unstable beta channel as a workaround, I've just published it on that channel too as a possible workaround.

Fixed ripping all clothing unintentionally ripping clothing worn by the player.


But now you can't rip clothing on corpses in the vicinity, just those on a single corpse. I filed a bug report:


I've never had a problem with having my own clothes ripped, probably because I've favourited everything I wear. I've sometimes made the mistake of saving clothes I liked to my backpack only to then rip them by mistake, but once you're careful and drop or store them out of range then you don't get this problem. These are rare cases though, I'd rather have the convenience of being able to rip up everything and the slight inconvenience of having to take care with stuff I want to save, than having to manually rip clothes on each corpse.

Well, CDDA just got a bit harder.


"Fixed characters not limping when they had their groin bitten."

Melted ice-cream doesn't matter for CDDA. This, however, makes the start an absolute pain. You have to slow-crawl everywhere or abuse the jog glitch until your groin is healed. CDDA start just got about 20x harder for me. Went from "don't care, just kill everything and hope for no flaming zombies, no cold after first 4 hours, start killing 500 zombies a day after day 1" to... can't even get started atm. Basically, crawl east to forests to los everything and then good old farm tactic, but 20 times slower. Or risk crawling west to walls and good luck fighting 50 zombies while crawling.


More challenging = more fun but crawling everywhere = the start takes about 20 minutes of your time just crawling = less fun.

I always rejoice when I find some melted ice cream early in a CDDA run.  That notwithstanding, I'm glad you posted about this so I don't have to.  In the start of my only CDDA run after the update I was surprised to find I could barely walk at all without first aid, and only slightly better after removing the glass and bandaging.  If that's the way it's going to be, I don't know how CDDA is going to be possible.  You'd have maybe one chance in ten at best.


Whn you say "crawling", did you mean crouching, as in stealth mode?  I haven't tried moving in stealth while injured in CDDA since the update.

Not seeing this fix, however I'm running Firearms B41 mod so maybe that's why?

It does seem like they've overslept. I am sure they've stayed up way to late playing PZ and don't want to make any mistakes while groggy. Or maybe they think that 41.77.9 rounded up is 41.78?

Am I doing something wrong or is it currently simply impossible to dismantle car wrecks? It needs 20 charges of a propane torch, while the max. amount of charges is 10. Even with multiple propane torches and a propane tank in my inventory I am not able to dismantle this car wreck.

You're using a mod that makes it take 20.

Hey guys, first time poster, love the game, I'm just feeding my addiction for it each day nearly, but I had a question:

"Removed the numeric information tooltip provided when selecting eat all/half/quarter food item context options."

Can I ask why you guys made this change? This also makes portioning out meals into bowls lose all numeric information as well, even if you haven't consumed any of it, is this intended? Cooking is becoming more inconvenient and tedious now, would it be possible to revert this change?

I meant walking very slowly like how your character does at the start of CDDA.


Normally in CDDA I would kill every zombie at the start, idle in the house next to the starting one, lose my cold this way after about 4 hours, then move on to looting the trailer park and clearing hordes north into the town. I would usually by the end of week 1 be clearing the northern road with all the shops.


This groin thing, however?! Goddamn. Now I have to resort to crawling east towards the farm house to lose the cold, and... I don't really know what to do from there. I'm not sure how long the deep wound takes to heal by itself if you don't stitch it. If it takes more than a week, then clearly the best move is to go loot more farm houses and forage on the way and hope for a needle. You can survive pretty trivially by just eating the berries you find everywhere (only the holly berry is poisonous) and drinking water from the houses.


Now I was able to pretty much do what I usually do in CDDA by my 10th try or so, maybe a day or two behind schedule, but only because I was lucky enough to find a needle in the farm house. And I was abusing the jog glitch, mind you. When you do find a needle you can finally jog like normal.


You could always just jog glitch up to the medical center in town and hope for a suture needle, but you can't really fight, so it'd be really risky. Or you can just forage for branches and stones, get some spears, start killing some zombies, get more gear, a bag, some hunting knives etc... and work from there, and just jog glitch all the time so you stand a chance. If you don't jog glitch though... yeah there's just no fighting. Or maybe very carefully?


Btw the machete fix... thought that was intended. I would keep a machete on me all the time for infinite spears. Kinda sucks!

Hey guys, first let me say, that I love this game, so thanks a lot for creating it.


Guys, I just want to say that I feel that new balancing of metalworking just doesn't feel right... I understand if you wish to fix the bug of 0% propane usage on disassembly, but the rate at which I have to refill my torch at now, is just too tedious. Refill after 9 disassembles, I can't even get through 2 trailer park units, with out refilling, nor 1 Riverside rich house.


Also it makes disassembling certain items a waste now because they yield too little XP. so now I feel like it's only worthwhile to disassemble the 'Big' items. It's already tedious enough to level this skill, but now I have to be picky for max yield on XP.


And then there's auto mechanic's. I'm a long term survivor and I maintain the same vehicle for many months by repairing the hood. Now I can only get 2 hood repairs from a torch, making it way harder. Going from a 100unit pp torch to a 10unit pp torch is just too extreme. I get it that you added more pp tanks and update the spawning tables for more pp, but now I have to have dozens of tanks sitting around, just for simple daily activities -- just doesn't feel right. 


Metalworking was one of my favorite skills. I loved building cages around my fishing hole (a small 3 sided 5 x 7 tile cage) with wire fence or pole fence or some combination of the two,  or I also like caging up the front patio of a house to provide a 'see through airlock'. And I love love love Metal crates.  It was already hard enough work to just assemble the material needed for those projects, but with the amount of refilling of torches, it's just a total buzzkill.


you had something that was really fun, and now it's become like work and it's not so fun anymore. Guys we are all playing the game for fun of it, not to simulate work or reality... Indeed, many of us are trying to escape reality hehe...


I'm hoping that you might reconsider the new balance... You have it now as a 10unit pp torch getting 16 refills from 160unit pp tank. How about something like a 50unit pp torch with a 150unit pp tank... getting 3 refills per tank (or something in that ballpark).  Guys, I don't want refill 16 times for the same amount of work, just makes it boring tedious and not fun. 


One last thing to consider is that with the new changes, many people's long term saves will be changed in such a way that they may no longer be able to use metalworking effectively. If you've 'scouted' but not looted a town, the pp will be spawned using the old tables and there won't be enough to level up and create projects. 


Just wanted to give some feedback. Don't be angry with me for my criticism, I still love this game, but I hoping you might reconsider.
